Multicultural Playwright Program

Program information

This highly engaging performance program is intended for students who have English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) and students with a refugee background. Participating students must be in Years 7 to 12 and attend a NSW public school.
The Multicultural Playwright Program engages students in activities that develop language skills within the context of writing for theatre. Students will have the opportunity to share their stories as they develop their literacy, expressive and performance skills. Teachers will participate in a professional learning session prior to the student program. Students will then participate in a series of workshops culminating in a fantastic livestreamed performance.
